I’m fascinated by the history of the shoe and I can’t help being amazed at the beautiful creations masters of the past have produced, some of them bolder and more innovative than any pair of designer shoes today. And some other times, I marvel at the kookiness or even downright cruelty of a model. So, let’s reserve a little blog corner every week for a piece of shoe history.
Without further ado, here’s today’s shoe:
Delman vintage red and gold satin platform booties with instep hole and lace and bow detail, circa 1938-1940. Uncomfortable–perhaps, but also daring, exotic, stunning.
